A Different Answer

A lady wanted to know what to do with the patterned paper that she didn't like when she'd buy one of the stacks. The majority of the responses were, 'Give it to my kids to play with.' And the rest were about evenly divided between, 'donate it' 'trade it' and 'save it' as well as 'use it up in teeny little pieces where you don't notice how ugly it is.'

I was the only person who said, "Stop buying the stacks."

What do you know! The original person responded and said that she was going to stop buying the stacks because there was so much waste and she didn't have kids.

There are times when the best way to deal with waste is to stop buying in wasteful ways.
